to investigate. hillary clinton says she plans to cooperate with the probe. the pennsylvania judge has struck down the state's election law requiring voters to show photo id. pennsylvania's law allowed voting only to those who could produce a state driver's license, government employee id, or a state non-driver id card. but on tuesday, a commonwealth court judge ruled the state does not have enough time to adequately provide id to all those that need it in time for the november 6 election. the law was among the strictest to pass as a nationwide effort critics say is aimed at disenfranchising lower-income residents and people of color who tend to vote democratic. after its passage earlier this year, pennsylvania's republican house majority leader, mark -- mike turzai, predicted it would help romney win the state. tuesday's ruling does help pave the way for its use in future elections. mississippi also announced it will not enforce its law requiring photo ids at the polls. palau was put on hold after the justice department demanded proof that the measure would not violate the voting rights act.
